How To Upload PDF Files To WordPress Site Without Installing Any Plugin

Those pro-WordPress users must be aware of the fact that uploading PDF files to WordPress site is pretty simple. But I have noticed that beginners find it really complex to upload PDF files to their WordPress site and make them available for download.

This method is simple and do not require any plugin installation from your side.

Step 1: At first, edit the post or page where you want to upload the PDF files. Here on the post editor screen, you need to click on the ‘Add Media’ button.

Step 2: Now the WordPress media uploader popup will appear. Here you need to click on ‘Select Files’ button to select the PDF file you want to upload.

Step 3: WordPress will now upload the PDF file to your site. Once it’s done, you’ll see a thumbnail preview of your PDF files, and on the right column, you can add the necessary title, caption, and description for your file.


Step 4: Now click on the ‘Insert into post’ button to add the PDF file into your post.

It’s done,  you can also see it in a preview, how it looks you can continue editing your post or page and simply publish it.

Now you can continue editing your post or page and simply publish it.

Let me know in the comment section if this method works for you and also mention any sort of query if you are finding any kind of difficulty.
